The Yankees Need a New Approach, Not New Free Agents
Huffington Post Sports - over 4 years
This will be a difficult and possibly strange off-season for the New York Yankees. The lawsuit between their star, aging and scandal-ridden third baseman Alex Rodriguez and Major League Baseball has drawn the most attention, but there is more. The Yankees, after missing the playoffs in 2013, have been rumored to be pursuing more or less all of the top free agents. Of course, the best free agent on the market this off-season is the Yankees' own Robinson Cano. Losing Cano, one of the game's best hitters, would hurt the Yankees, but signing him to a huge multi-year contract, is also not without risk. Thus far, however, the Yankees off-season has been relatively quiet. The only significant moves they have made is to resign a pair of shortstops. Derek Jeter was signed to a restructured one year extension and Brendan Ryan was retained in case Jeter can no longer play. With prominent aging stars like Rodriguez and Jeter, as well as Mark Teixeira and CC Sabathia, the Yankees will struggle to...

Giants, Tim Hudson agree to 2-year deal
San Francisco Chronicle - over 4 years
Another intriguing short-term option is former Marlins No. 1 starter Josh Johnson, who probably will sign a one-year deal coming off an arm injury with Toronto. Sources say Johnson, who lives in Las Vegas, wants to pitch in the National League West and told the Giants and Padres through his agent that they were his first choices and that he might offer those teams a discount. The Braves, Hudson's previous team, weren't willing to come close to the Giants' offer or even match the $9 million Hudson made in 2013, and it became clear during last week's GM meetings in Florida that Hudson was willing to return to the West Coast. Because the Braves didn't make a $14.1 million qualifying offer, the Giants won't lose a compensatory draft pick. In his final season in Atlanta, he was 8-7 with a 3.97 ERA and 1.19 WHIP, picking up his 200th career win in April, an 8-1 victory over the Nationals in which he hit a home run.

Chris Davis crushed his major league-leading 37th homer and finished with four RBI to cap his torrid first half of the season and lead the Baltimore Orioles to a 7-4 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays in the rubber match of a three-game set at Camden Yards. Davis went deep for the fourth consecutive game to tie the AL record for homers before the All-Star break set by Reggie Jackson in 1969. The lefty slugger added a two- run double in the first and pushed his impressive RBI total to 93 on the season to join Detroit's Miguel Cabrera as the only players in MLB history to hit at least 30 homers and knock in 90-or- more runs before the All-Star break. Cabrera finished his first half with 30 longballs and 95 RBI. Adam Jones homered for the third straight game and finished with two RBI for the O's, who have won four of their last five games to enter the break at 53-43, good for third in the AL East behind Boston and Tampa Bay. Scott Feldman (1-1) stru...

Max Scherzer just keeps on winning as he notched his 13th victory of the season to lead the Detroit Tigers in a 6-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays in the third portion of a four-game series. Scherzer (13-0) is now a win away from matching Roger Clemens' 14-0 start to the 1986 campaign as he gave up just two runs on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings. Also, with eight strikeouts in the game, he extended another streak. Scherzer has notched at least six strikeouts in all 17 of his starts this season. It's the second-longest march in AL history as Pedro Martinez holds the record with a 29-game run in 2000. Alex Avila hit a three-run home run while Victor Martinez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run, two RBI and two runs scored for the Tigers, who have won two straight after dropping six of seven. Colby Rasmus and Maicer Izturis each drove in a run for the Blue Jays, who have lost seven of their last 10 g...

Maicer Izturis hit a two-run single in the eighth inning to lift the Toronto Blue Jays to a 2-0 win over the Colorado Rockies in the opener of a three-game set at Rogers Centre. Izturis finished 2-for-3 and also made a spectacular diving play in the fifth inning to potentially save a run for Toronto. Josh Johnson worked 7 1/3 shutout innings, scattering five hits and striking out 10 for the Blue Jays, who have won six straight games. Brett Cecil (3-0) recorded the final two outs of the eighth to earn the win and Casey Janssen notched his 15th save of the season. Jorge De La Rosa carried a no-hitter over 5 1/3 innings. He allowed just one hit, walked three and struck out four over seven frames. Matt Belisle (4-4) was pegged with the loss for Colorado, which has dropped four of its last six games.

One day after the Rangers and Toronto staggered through an 18-inning marathon, Texas made sure to keep Sunday's contest to nine innings. Adrian Beltre hit a go-ahead home run in the seventh inning and Joe Nathan escaped trouble in the ninth as the Rangers avoided a three-game sweep against the Blue Jays with a 6-4 win.
